Jennifer Lawrence left producers of the MTV Movie Awards scrambling to re-arrange the show when she failed to appear at the ceremony.

Jennifer Lawrence was a no-show at the MTV Movie Awards last night.

The Silver Linings Playbook star and her co-star Bradley Cooper were among the biggest winners at the ceremony on Sunday. She collected Best Female Performance for her role in the film, he Best Male Performance and the pair Best Kiss, but the show's producers were left with a headache for the live broadcast when Jennifer failed to appear at the ceremony in Culver City, Los Angeles.

Show bosses reportedly planned to showcase the Oscar-winning actress heavily in the broadcast, including expensive promotion for Jennifer's forthcoming movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but were left embarrassed when she didn't turn up, reports entertainment website Deadline.

Additionally, the show had to be re-arranged to accommodate the 22-year-old star's absence, with a planned comedy skit featuring her and host Rebel Wilson being scrapped and several other segments being re-shuffled.

Jennifer's Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley (38) apologised for the actress' no-show while accepting the Best Kiss award.

He told the audience: "Thanks so much. Jen's not here. I'm sorry. I know. But, she was great to kiss."

Despite the apology, the crowd was described as "audibly upset", according to MTV.com.

The reason for Jennifer's absence is said to be a scheduling conflict.

The in-demand screen star is currently shooting a new movie, which reunites her with Silver Linings Playbook director David O'Russell and co-star Bradley, and is expected to jet off to Canada straight after that film to begin work on the hotly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past.
